I would start with acrylic yarn in 1 or 2 colors and maybe a 4.5 or 5mm hook. :yellow_heart:

acrylic yarn is great to start with, because it’s so cheap!
you’ll need:

  • yarn. I don’t recommend starting with black as your stitches can be hard to see!
  • a hook, with acrylic yarn I’d stick between sizes 3mm to 4.5mm
  • stuffing (for plushies)
  • scizzors
  • a darning needle (for sewing in ends)
    goodluck!! I’d love to see any projects you make!!

Yarn of any type but acrylic is recommended usually for beginners. Size 4mm or 3mm hook. Yarn size wise size 1mm- 2mm down from the label recommendation. Also scissors, and some stitch markers. And some wool needles to sew in ends. If doing plushies safety eyes and stuffing.

Also yarn colour wise id recommend colour changing yarn ie varigated it makes it easier to see stitches that and it makes a pretty pattern as you work
